Of the almost 30,000 new immigrants who arrived in Israel over the past year, more than 1,200 have settled in Ra’anana, boasts mayor and former Jewish agency chairman Ze’ev Bielski.

Speaking to The Jerusalem Post prior to Rosh Hashana, Bielski said his administration has made a concerted effort to reach out to incoming olim, noting that although previous years have seen the famously Anglo town absorbing mostly English speakers, demographics have been shifting.

In addition to 546 from France, he said there were nearly 300 English speakers and miscellaneous newcomers from Turkey, Italy, South America, and even Morocco.

“It’s significant. The whole city is feeling it. The absorption center is completely full. The ulpan, we can’t even fit a pin into it, and we have to enlarge [it] because the demand is so great,” he said.
